Licking County Prosecutor Kenneth Oswalt told the News that Knox was arrested through a joint effort by the Utica Police Department and the Licking County Sheriff’s Office. While a second robbery incidence occurred at The Loft in St. Louisville the same evening, a tip from family members alerted law enforcement to the whereabouts of Knox and a second suspect who were then seen on surveillance video at Walmart purchasing a handgun.

Knox was charged with two counts of robbery. Knox’s case has been assigned to a judge, and a pre-trial conference is forthcoming.

The second suspect is expected to be charged.
